Some have already sold... and almost all of the first phase have sold, at a lower price than the new ones.

Interesting i guess Hendley Homes and Saxon Homes were torn down just in time or they too woild bw delayed....maybe keep one building near forest Drive and convert it into a community ctr and the rest of the new development around it. There is also still allen benedict court on harden. Maybe save that one? Its the least problematic which is likely why its been around this long....it will be the last one standing

The outlet isn't official as far as I know but yes SCANA is clearing that land currently along with already cleared and prepped land across the interstate with infrastructure in place. The area is actually developing nicely with the newly opened hotel at Ottare. Hopefully more announcements will be on the way this year.

All of these older strip suburban areas are going to be tough to redevelop and re brand Many miliis don't want a sprawling house on a large lot in the suburbs and most Gen X grew up in many of these neighborhoods and don't want to move back. Boomers are moving downtown or retirement communities which doesn't leave much of anyone else left to buy and renovate a circa 1970s to 1980s Brady Bunch split level. The retail that Services these neighborhoods suffer as well. I'm not saying that the County shouldn't try and do something it's just going to be to Tough

Yep sad but true. All of these malls need to be repurposed as office and residential along with light manufacturing in the form of crafts makers spaces and small clean industries and some retail. If people can live work and shop in the same development you may create a new interest in some of these sprawling facilities Repurposing them is the only way to save them and the tax base they need to support that benefits from redevelopment

I support the idea of making them into mixed used apartments
